Chelsea vs Arsenal 01/20/2013 Keesh’s Free EPL Soccer Pick and Preview
This time around though, it will all be about revenge and revival for the men in red. The Gunners have somewhat reached that point in the season, where they continue being inconsistent and finally get a Champions League spot towards the end of the season; just like they have done in recent years.
Having said that though, this Chelsea side cannot be undermined. I mean, they have had consistency issues of late too, especially given the nature of their 1-0 defeat against QPR recently. But Demba Ba has signed on since then and believe me when I say that he could go on to inspire them for the rest of the season.
Arsenal will be missing Laurent Koscielny for this trip, after he was red carded against City last week. However if they were to take anything from this, Theo Walcott will have to be on song again.
The Blues will undoubtedly be banking on Juan Mata to spur them on again, just like he did in the corresponding fixture earlier this season. His battle with Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla will be an intriguing one though.
On paper, Chelsea have a better squad. However as we have seen all the time, football can produce unlikely results and unlikely times. With that said, I think Arsenal will do enough to nick a favourable draw in this one.
